Your Role In The Bicycle Revolution

Click here for a copy of the companion document, “Shifting Gears”.

There are a lot of times here in the MassBike office that we get a familiar call. Our phone rings, and a concerned citizen starts telling the story of a terrible road, dangerous intersection, bad enforcement, or any number of other barriers that keep them from bicycling. And the question inevitably follows, “So, what should I do?”

What’s more, we know that for every one of these calls we get there are dozens of others who don’t call our office but are thinking the exact same thing. In response, we have put together our two-part Bikeable Communities Training, which gets to the heart of that critical question – “What should I do?” The first part of the training, “Plugging into the Process” goes over how local advocates can get involved. The second part, “Policies, Programs, and Projects,” provides an overview of the different ways that a community can encourage bicycling.

The classes are free and open to the public, though registration is required. You can register here. See below for the class schedule, and feel free to email Education@MassBike.org if you have any questions.
